The idea of a bilateral Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Center for solid and solution state spectroscopy arose through the collaboration between scientists of JKU and the University of South Bohemia in 2004. It was realized through a joint project within the ETC Austria - Czech Republic 2007-2013 programme of the European Union (EU) between the Johannes Kepler University Linz (JKU) and the University of South Bohemia in ?esk? Bud?jovice (USB): “Cooperative Regional Research Infrastructure for Molecular Science and Technology” (RERI-uasb) Thus, the first Austro?Czech Scientific Research Center was realized in 2011. Since September 2011 three superconducting magnets with field strengths of 7.0 T, 11.7 T and 16.4 T and a variety of probes are operating at the Institute of Organic Chemistry at JKU Linz. They are available and used for research and teaching by both universities. The NMR Center is co-financed with the European Union from the European Region Development Fund and operated jointly by both universities.

Hungary / Institute for Computer Science and Control (SZTAKI)-Hungarian Academy of Sciences (HAS)

The main research topic of the 3D Internet Based Control and Communication (3DICC) Laboratory falls into the category of Future Internet. The primary goal in this context is to design, implement and integrate solutions that allow for communication, collaboration and control through augmented and shared 3D environments. The Virtual Collaboration Arena (VirCA) serves as a unified background software infrastructure allowing the collaborators to share and manipulate real and virtual entities over the Internet which lead to effective knowledge transfer and knowledge integration. The hardware infrastructure of the laboratory consists of a 4D Reconstruction Studio and a 3D Virtual Reality Room. The 4D Studio is capable of generating the textured 3D model of complex moving objects from multiple camera images. The Virtual Reality Room provides a 3 walled immersive virtual environment with different motion capture devices allowing advanced interaction with the objects incorporated in the shared virtual reality of VirCA. The 3DICC Laboratory was established in 2011 within a consortium of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) and the Computer and Automation Research Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA SZTAKI).

Finland / Aalto University

Aalto NeuroImaging is a research infrastructure at OV Lounasmaa Laboratory, Aalto University School of Science, Espoo, Finland. Aalto NeuroImaging consists of Aalto TMS Laboratory (navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation; nTMS), Advanced Magnetic Imaging (AMI) Centre (3-T functional magnetic resonance imaging; fMRI), and MEG Core (magnetoencephalography; MEG). Aalto TMS was established in 2013. AMI Centre was established in 2002, and fMRI scanner has been upgraded in 2012. The MEG Core MEG device was upgraded in 2008.

Traversing proton beam-irradiated, mid/high-Z nanoparticles produce site-specific enhancement of X-ray photon-electron emission via the Coulomb nanoradiator (CNR) effect, resulting in a nano- to micro-scale therapeutic effect at the nanoparticle-uptake target site. Here, we demonstrate the uptake of iron oxide nanoparticles (IONs) and nanoradiator-mediated, site-specific thrombolysis without damaging the vascular endothelium in an arterial thrombosis mouse model. The enhancement of lowenergy electron (LEE) emission and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production from traversing proton beam-irradiated IONs was examined. Flow recovery was only observed in CNR-treated mice, and greater than 50% removal of the thrombus was achieved. A 2.5-fold greater reduction in the thrombusenabled flow recovery was observed in the CNR group compared with that observed in the untreated ION-only and proton-only control groups (p < 0.01). Enhancement of the X-ray photon-electron emission was evident from both the pronounced Shirley background in the electron yield and the 1.2- to 2.5-fold enhanced production of ROS by the proton-irradiated IONs, which suggests chemical degradation of the thrombus without potent emboli.

The irradiation of nitrogen ion beams alters the chemical structure of conjugated polymers including poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT). The high dose nitrogen ion beams decompose conjugated polymers, which can be applied for dry patterning of conjugated polymer films. The P3HT strips patterned by the high dose nitrogen ion beams act as a good channel layer for organic field-effect transistors with reliable characteristics.

We report the synthesis of carbon nanotube (CNT) forests with a narrow diameter distribution based on Fe ion implantation method. By annealing the Fe-implanted SiO2/Si wafer in an Ar atmosphere at 800°C for 15 min, the Fe particles on the surface of SiO2 layer are successfully formed by the diffusion of Fe atoms from the SiO2 layer. Interestingly, the size distribution of Fe catalyst particles for Fe-implanted SiO2/Si wafers does not change with the prolonged annealing durations of up to 12 h. Using secondary ion mass spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy (TEM), we confirmed that the implanted Fe atoms diffuse out of the SiO2 layer and form Fe particles on both the SiO2 surface and the interface between SiO2 and Si. The cross-sectional TEM images indicate that the Fe catalyst particles are anchored in the SiO2 layer, which limits the particles' mobility and results in an invariant catalyst size distribution for prolonged annealing durations. Therefore, we anticipate that implantation can be an efficient alternative catalyst preparation method for CNT forest growth which can solve various growth issues that are inherently caused by conventional physical vapor deposition method.
